Andy Pettitte ended his tremendous Major League career in style on Saturday, allowing just one run on five hits in a complete game victory over the Astros.
Pettitte walked a pair and punched out five on the evening. The only blemish on his evening was an RBI groundout by Chris Carter in the fourth inning. The 41-year-old southpaw finishes his 18th and final MLB season with an 11-11 record, 3.74 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 128/48 K/BB ratio over 185 1/3 innings. For his illustrious career, that could end in the Hall of Fame, Pettitte sports a 256-153 career mark with 3.85 ERA. His 19 career postseason victories rank first in MLB history. One of the finest hurlers of the last two decades, Pettitte will be sorely missed by the Yankees and baseball fans everywhere next season. Sat, Sep 28, 2013 10:35:00 PM

The Yankees have pushed Andy Pettitte's final start back to Saturday against the Astros.

Pettitte was previously expected to pitch Friday. Either way, he has a great chance to end his career as a winner in his hometown. The Yankees have yet to decide who will start Friday and Sunday.

Andy Pettitte took a loss despite a great showing in his final Yankee Stadium start Sunday, holding the Giants to two runs one just two hits and a walk over seven frames.

The veteran left-hander struck out six. Pettitte had a no-hitter going with one out in the sixth, but rookie infielder Ehire Adrianza then spoiled the party with a solo homer. He was pulled after allowing a leadoff double in the eighth and then watched the run cross the plate two batters later. Pettitte will carry a 3.88 ERA next week into his hometown of Houston, where he'll make the final start of his career.

Andy Pettitte officially announced his retirement Friday, effective at the conclusion of the 2013 season.

The 41-year-old will go out with a bang, making his final home start on Sunday and his final start ever next weekend in his hometown of Houston. "I’m announcing my retirement prior to the conclusion of our season because I want all of our fans to know now while I’m still wearing this uniform how grateful I am for their support throughout my career," Pettitte said in a statement. "To have the opportunity to tip my cap during these remaining days and thank them for making my time here with the Yankees so special."

Joel Sherman of the New York Post is "getting a lot of buzz" that Andy Pettitte will announce his retirement Friday.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal and others have confirmed that the lefty will indeed retire. The timing makes sense, as Pettitte is making what would be his final home start on Sunday in New York, which would allow Yankees fans one final look at him. He'd then make one final start in Houston, which happens to be his hometown (and the only other place he's played). Pettitte, 41, surprised everyone when he came out of retirement last year, but he came back again in 2013 and has had a solid season, posting a 3.93 ERA over 28 starts.

Andy Pettitte allowed just one run in 6 2/3 innings but the Yankees lost to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

It was a fruitless night for the New York offense, which led to Pettitte falling to 10-10 on the year despite a strong performance. The veteran lefty scattered six hits and struck out five. He will carry a 3.93 ERA into his next scheduled start at home against the Giants.

Andy Pettitte notched a quality start Wednesday, limiting the Orioles to three run over 6 1/3 frames in a 5-4 victory.

Pettitte surrendered nine hits but walked only one and was able to limit the damage for the most part until the Yankees' offense took the lead late. The veteran left-hander has posted a quality start each of his last six times out, compiling a 2.13 ERA over that stretch. He'll try to keep it going next week in Toronto.

Andy Pettitte racked up eight strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday.

Pettitte surrendered three runs on five hits and three walks over his six innings of work. He left with an 8-3 lead and in line for his 11th victory, but the Yankee bullpen was unable to hold on. The 41-year-old southpaw has really turned his season around in recent weeks. Over his last five starts, he’s 3-0 with a 1.71 ERA and 22/9 K/BB ratio. He’ll look to extend his recent success when he does battle against the Orioles in Baltimore on Wednesday.

Andy Pettitte tossed six innings of two-run ball in Sunday's no-decision against the Orioles.

He struck out three, didn't walk a batter and ceded seven hits. The left-hander has been consistently stellar since he gave up seven runs in 2 2/3 innings against the White Sox on August 5, allowing just four earned runs over his last five outings. Pettitte (4.01 ERA) is 3-0 in that stretch and 10-9 overall.

Andy Pettitte will move up in the rotation to start Sunday against the Orioles.

He'll start in place of Phil Hughes, who will be pushed back in the rotation to start Monday against the White Sox. Pettitte is on a very nice roll at the moment, but he isn't missing many bats and could be a risky play in shallow mixed fantasy leagues.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 04:32:00 PM

Andy Pettitte spun seven shutout frames in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Blue Jays.

Pettitte recorded only three punchouts, but he gave up just five hits and walked a pair. The left-hander has really turned it on of late, allowing just one earned run over his last three outings. He needs to be in fantasy lineup next week at home against the White Sox.
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 10:17:00 PM

Andy Pettitte tossed six innings of one-run ball in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Blue Jays.

The veteran southpaw walked three but gave up just four hits and recorded three punchouts. A solo blast surrendered to J.P. Arencibia was the only tally the Jays came up with against Pettitte, who now holds a 4.26 ERA and 1.43 WHIP this season. He'll get Toronto again next week, this time north of the border.

Andy Pettitte allowed three runs (none earned) in 6 2/3 innings in a 10-3 win over the Red Sox on Friday.

Things unraveled a bit in his final inning of work, but it was a step in the right direction for the veteran southpaw. Notching his first win since July 11, Pettitte gave up six hits and one walk while fanning five batters. The five strikeouts were his most in a start since way back on June 26. He'll attempt to build on this one when he faces the Blue Jays next week at home. Most mixed league owners have better options at their disposal.

Andy Pettitte allowed just one run on Sunday against the Tigers, but was yanked after 4 1/3 innings of a no-decision.

The left-hander allowed eight hits and walked three while tallying 101 pitches over 4 1/3 frames. He's tossed 176 pitches over his last two starts while completing just seven total innings (Pettitte gave up seven runs and 11 hits in 2 2/3 innings Monday against the White Sox). After posting a 2.87 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 2012, Pettitte is 7-9 with a 4.62 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. He's no longer a mixed league mainstay.

Andy Pettitte struggled against the White Sox on Monday, giving up seven runs and 11 hits in 2 2/3 innings.

Most of the hits were pretty soft, but they were getting harder as the game went along and the Yankees had little choice but to pull him in the third. It was Pettitte's shortest start since July 18, 2010 against the Rays (3 ER in 2 1/3 IP) and the first in which he allowed seven runs and pitched fewer than four innings since July 1, 2007 against the A's (8 R, 7 ER in 1 2/3 IP). Pettitte isn't much of an option as a mixed-league starter right now.
